Please Don’t Touch

In the last 6 months I have had in excess of 50 unwanted, quite threatening, sexual advances by men. With other men having to jump in to protect me on a few occasions.

Please Don’t Touch is a short film script partially based on my experiences and is intended to address the fact that ordinary females get sexually harassed and assaulted everyday, whilst they are simply out and about, regardless of how they are dressed. It also shows that there seems to be no concept of personal space anymore. This story focuses on Ali, your average 16/17 year old, who has discovered that she can’t even walk around her local town centre or train station without someone forcing themselves upon her. Then when she finally manages to get rid of the unwanted attention, her pursuers ‘find’ Ali on social media and so Ali is harassed all over again.
